1. What is one of your most embarrassing moments and why?
When I took a charge in one game my freshman or sophomore year and slid backwards across the floor. My shorts slid backwards as well, and I had to grab them while I was on the ground.

2. Who is your role model and what is it about that person that makes them a role model?
My grandmother, mother and my two brothers, Chuckie and Kyle are my role models. Chuckie tore his ACL and LCL and he never gave up. Kyle, my youngest brother, was three months premature, and he's doing everything the doctors said he wouldn't be able to do.

3. What is/has been your favorite class at OU?

4. What is your favorite basketball memory?
Beating Purdue to go to the Sweet 16 my sophomore year and being with the team.

My boyfriend, Justin.
